we had had in 15 years. so we're up 7. 6% from the worst month. that make august the second worst month we've had in 15 years in terms of existing home sales. so it was an okay number, better than expected but still not great. we are still in this housing trough. now, with get new home sales today so we'll keep an eye on that number as well. to maybe support that we're climbing out of this trough although we'll have to see trend months not just one month, sarah. that will tell us that things are heading in the right intersection. >> nonetheless, maybe those numbers will help. yesterday, we ended on a down note. do we think the news of this coming out might help us shoot back up here today? >> we also get durable goods orders. that will be another big report. you are buying big stuff. how that is working out and how is the economy in terms of growing and making those big ticket purchases. that will be very important so that number comes out this morning as well. and i think we may see a little

a day on a farm. cole we are's nicely show has featured the uufw's take our jobs campaign which invites u.s. citizen and legal residents to replace undocumented immigrants on farms for the day. on his show last night, he showed his stint as a migrant worker at an upstate new york farm where he picked beans in the field an sorted corn in a packing house. he will testify about his experience alongside the u fw before a house judiciary subcommittee. the hearing will focus on food security in the u.s. colbert will hold a repeat performance in washington next month. during dueling rallies, he will be holding a counter rally to jon stewart's rally to restore sanity. colbert is calling his the march to keep fear alive. about # 0,000 people are expected for the october 30th rallies on the national mall up from the original number of 25,000. now, that hear hearing today is scheduled to start at 90 in the
rayburn building. according to fox news.com, one rub subcommittee member said this hearing was a joke. but a spokesperson said this is a serious issue and it is not a tv stunt. colbert himself said this isn't really much of a waste of taxpayer dollars as some people have criticized. he says he paying his way here and his lodging. the only things the tax pay vers to pay for is his water and the electricity for the mike phone for the five minutes he will be speaking. >> for more on the visit to the capitol today plus the rallies set for next month, go to myfoxdc.com. the redskins suffered a gut- wrenching loss to the texans last week. >> this week, the competition comes down a little bit as they take on st. louis an their rookie quarter back. the problem is they have to go there so they'll be playing on the road. dave ross with us now. >> never easy though. on the road, any time in the
nfl. sarah knows this. this is not easy. >> the last couple of years, it hasn't been easy to play the rams eager. >> or the lions but we won't go there yet. they do have is some weapons, st. louis. the main weapon, he is a guy you might have heard from, awe guy named sam bradford. the number one pick in the entire draft from this year out of oklahoma. is a big tall kid. he has aquitted himself quite well showing poise in the pocket which is a good thing. you see him here on the rollout. he has athletic ability. he can scramble, make this things happen. he does not have a whole lot of help. the rams have lost the first two games although they are exit -- they were quite competitive in both of them. >> i watched him a lot throughout his college career and pre-own games. he has looked pretty good. he is very impressive.
he is a guy that comes around once every 10 years if my opinion. >> the picture of the present is this guy, stephen jackson who runs like he is always angry. he is just a very violent runner. it is a bad thing if you are trying to tackle him. a big and strong guy and trulyity rams number one option on offense. while bradford may get all the ink, jackson sudden shod get most of the attention of the redskin defense come sunday. here is my football theory of relativity. average teams tend to lose on the road. good teams strug olympic the road. elite teams go on the road and pound lesser opponent. we'll find out what category the redskin fall into. >> that is not make a statement. which team do you think? >> i'll make an official prediction next hour. >> i'm he not going to wait for that. >> ill a wait too then.

that we're about to experience this massive financial crisis. now, shia is dating gordon gekko's daughter in the movie. it becomes this insanely dramatic film. i love the cast. eli wallach. i thought the movie wasn't as good as the original. the performances were stow strong. michael douglas is worth your money. hi a lot of problems with the editing. i didn't like the graphics. i did like seeing the 1980s cell phone. >> really? >> yeah. when i look back on sequels, terminator 2 judgment day, better than the original. i'llians, better than the original. god toward ii, you like it
better than the first one. this is a worthy sequel and worth seeing if you are a fan of the original. >> let's talk about catfish. we ran it earlier. i look at this and go how can this be interesting? ialways wanted to be a film maker. this movie was made for $2,000. it has already made $255,000. the profit margin is insane. here is the deal with this film. two film makers, one is the brother of the lead. he finds a girl on took. they develop a relationship. things do not start to add up. they find out that she might not be who she says she is. i can't really give anything way. all i have to say is stay away from any review on this movie except for this one because i'm in the going to spoil anything for you guys. they make a trip out to michigan to meet this girl who has been talking to him on the internet for months. it turns out -- i can't say anything but there is a big surprise. >> perhaps people could relate to it is maybe what you're
thinking if you are on facebook. >> it's commentary on our certainly networking and media. i think this is unintentionally genius. these guys did not set out to fine this story. they were just shooting their friends and trying to get a unique facebook relationship and end up getting this amazing story. the last 0 minutes, you will be blown away by. it is a $2,000 film and it is more rivetting than any film you've seen in the past year. >> come on. >> this is rivetting entertainment. >> better than avatar. i wasn't a big fan of avatar. i didn't love it. all it was pocohontas and fern gully in 3-d. >> legend of the guardians.
this one looks cool. >> beautiful visuals. it's visually stunning movie. but the plotted line deals with evil owls fighting good owls. i don't know how interesting that sounds to you guys. i think visually, it is a beautiful movie. story-wise, it is a little bit weak. i gave it a two and a half out of five. here is the thing. $150million budget for that movie. catfish is more rivetting, $2,000. >> i think i have to see it to prove you wrong. >> why do you want to prove me wrong so bad? >> i don't know. that is my mission now. >> never let me go. this one is pretty good. >> stay away from the trailers and the reviews. the a sick, twisted, dark, dare i say beautiful love story about three kids in school. they have no idea what this boarding cool really is. there is something crazy and sick going on there. check it out for yourself. based on a very popular book, never let me go.
i have all the cast on my show including the director of one- hour photo. four out of five. it is as crazy and sick as the joaquin phoenix movie? >> no, i had casey after flake on my show. can you see that. >> would green lights $150 million for a film about owls. >> it is like you said the words that were in my head. >> yeah. >> that make no sense to me. >> if they turn a profit, they'll make money. let's check on that forecast right now. we'll jump right in. ill ashow you what is happening outside as far as our current temperatures go. we are seeing our temperatures in the upper 60s to the mid- 70s. 73degrees right now here in the
nation's capital. 73degrees in annapolis. 62348 gaithersburg. 68 at dulles airport. calm bridge, maryland is at 72 degrees. here is a look he satellite- radar. what this will not show you, it will not show you the fog we have in place. we've been talking about it all morning. we have abeen showing you live pictures. the fog is dense in parts of the area. it will take time for that to burn off too. that is a problem we've got. other than that, the skies will be mostly clear today. our next real weather make are is going to come to us from the south and could bring us some rain eventually. here is what is going on. an area of low pressure forming well off to the south and west. not here. but with the jet stream being where it is, it is going to accepted some impulses into our direction which will bring us a chance of run late on sunday and then during the course of the next week after that for the first self days. but for the weekend, things aren't bad. saturday look fob a pretty day. cooler than today. high, 86. lots of sunshine. more clouds sunday and the chance of those rain showers
beginning to push in here late on sunday. mostly sunny skies today. hot an humidity i had with record heat. 95degrees is the projected high. five-day forecast, as i told you, tomorrow, 86 for your high. lots of sunshine. on sunday, 75 for a high. mostly includedy with some rain showers developing. and then a chance of run monday and tuesday. high in the 70s. that is awe look at what is happening with the weather. time now for ask the weather guys. a. in some ways dreading today's ask the weather guys. here we go. tucker barnes and i put our big heads together to answer your most pressing questions weather- related or other swies. - - otherwise. this is the hardest question we've ever had. today's question is from onin win which ther p he writes, when i aperson looks into space, how do the scientists know that they are looking into the past and not looking into
the future? >> very deep. deep thoughts by onfrom on-- by john from winchester. >> those not an easily answered question. when you are researching it, it leads you to all kind of other things about physics, time, the space-time continuum. it is teen. tucker, you want me to start this. >> i want you to start and finish it. >> i'll start it. basically speaking, what john is talking about, you know, you've heard this. the light from stars that we see is traveling such a long way that by the time it gets here, the original star itself may be gone. it is did you have rent than it appears to us now -- it is different than it appears to us now because we are just getting the light. light travels at the speed of 18 # thousand miles per second. so a star that is billions of miles away, it is tax a long
time for that light to get here. what we're seeing -- this is true of almost anything. we all reflect light. so when i'm seeing steve right now, remember light travels super, super fast i am seeing steve as he was a billionth after second ago or something like that. >> i changed a lot. >> there is no evidence, no reason to believe and there is nothing in term of physics that suggests that when we're looking around or locking into space that we can see the future. we can only see what has come to us in the past or right now. >> for instance, the light from the sun is about -- you are looking at it as it was eight manhunt ago. the full moon last night was -- that light takes 1.3 seconds to reach your eyes. farther out you get towards the edge of the universe, the longer you are looking back in history. then it gets very complicated
whether or not you can look into the future. i'll hand it over to tony. >> scientists believe that, if you could travel faster than the speed of light, which we can't, then theoretically, you could time travel into the past and possibly the future. although there are some great mind that have looked into all of this. all of it is theory because we can't do it. there is no reason to believe that we will ever be able to do it. but there rhetorically it would be possible. one scientist said that you can't travel in time because if we could, we would have visitor doctors the future visiting us right now and we don't have that. -- but theoretically it would be possible. >> does your head hurt yet in. >> it is starting to.
>> does your head hurt yet? >> it is starting to. >> if you have a question you want answered, go to myfoxdc.com. click on the weather habibie. i think we explained it very similarly but we didn't do it justice. we could talk about this for an hour. >> the music, it seems look a twilight zone because ever day at this time, it is like we're talking with julie wright over and over and over. >> teach, you sound luke that -- sound like that is a -- steve chenevey, you sound like that is a bad thing. we're tealing with a the bit of fog if you are traveling in from the west. so allow extra time out there on the roads. no incidents to report southbound along 270 out of hyattstown. we are slowing around the curve here. some of that fog is out there but a lot her work for those traveling in prince george's county. if you are travel ago long 28 approaching 66, we are checking
for a crash along the right side of the road. we are seeing traffic continue to flow with ease. suzanne nikolaus is slowing in centreville. we are 7100 to nutley street and nutley to the beltway. fox's the good guys returns for its season premiere. >> holly has a sneak speak coming up. >> we'll check in with holly in northwest d.c. coming up ♪ [ sniffs ]
